Japanese Horiyoshi Tattoo
Tattoos By Gabe Garcia Iron Tiger Tattoo Columbia Mo
Straight off the "Mr. Lucky" flash from '82 Doing these pieces from my sensei make me so happy. Just real straight forward meat-and-potatoes tattooing. Old Style.
Koi half sleeve, session one done and healing nicely.
By Ken Patten at the Tattoo Station, Newcastle upon Tyne.
This mural was designed to wrap around the walls of the bathrooms at at a bar called Whiskeytown in NYC. To keep with the rock and roll bar's subtle nautical theme I designed the mural to evoke a clash between classic American sailor tattoo imagery and the more modern Japanese influenced tattoos. All of which was filtered through my own illustrative style.

Three random tattoo ideas
Possibly the crispest headshot I ever took.
Canon 17-40L, on crop camera @29mm f./6.3 which = about 47mm.
Lots more of Ryo to come
Even I'm excited because I know what, ....and it's hot!
I can recommend both Portrait Proffesional 10 (£30 quid!) and this lens.
I find it perfect for the studio, it allows you to keep a nice relationship with the model in proximity, rather than shouting across the studio space with a 100, or 135mm, and around the 30-35 mm mark the sharpest bit of glass around £600 in my humble opinion.
Cons, watch out for the distortion at 17 mm end especially in the corners of the image. Used correctly this can make for some really useful effects when used low and really can exagerate leg length in a desirable way.
Another tip is manually use just one focus spot selector to shoot the closest eye on the model and avoid recomposing as much as possible (instead just say using the centre spot), a bit slower, but seems to work. Around f./8 is perfect too.
No use of this image without my prior consent in any way shape or form, thanks.
